Learn the ins and outs of large format additive manufacturing (LFAM) currently in use for tooling and prototyping for industrial manufacturing markets. With increased market adoption, improved print quality and more material availability, LFAM has made tooling and prototype articles a viable option for 3D printing and opens the door for aerospace, marine, transportation and energy applications at a large scale. Tooling fabricated on the LSAM can also be combined with traditional manufacturing techniques, such as composite layup and metal fabrication, to develop tool strings for a wider application space.

Participants of this webinar will learn about several case studies detailing specific printed projects and the benefits and tradeoffs to traditional builds. The presentation will include an overview of project definition and the required approach to accommodate rapid, large-scale additive manufacturing. The case studies will identify both successes within the project space as well as lessons learned from challenging opportunities.
